Chronic bladder pain led to surprise baby birth – mum's incredible story

A woman gave birth at home the morning after being discharged from A&E and only hours after medics told her she was six to eight weeks pregnant.

Erin Hogg, 20, went to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn, with chronic pains.

Despite her concerns, doctors told her there was nothing wrong although tests had confirmed she was in the early stages of pregnancy,

Still in pain, and shock, Erin returned to her Wisbech home but called 999 the following morning because of continuing excruciating pains.

She waited around 15 minutes for the ambulance to arrive.

“Within five minutes of them being here I had to rush to the toilet as I felt I needed to go ASAP – I thought I was constipated!” she said.

“I was crying to my partner, Karl.

“After using the toilet, I was halfway down the stairs when I put my hand down and all I could feel was a baby's head.

Far from being six to eight weeks pregnant, Erin was in full labour and was pushing for 11 minutes.
